Asked if Steve King should resign, Trump says these things in rapid succession:

"I don't know the situation with Steve King"; I've read the statement; I haven't been briefed on the statement; it certainly wasn't a good statement.

God: I barred a leader from entering Israel once. It was Moses.

It was a dick move then and it's a dick move now.

I was a proud member of the NRA. These days, I think about the moment they lost me forever

What led to my final break with the organization was a chance encounter with an NRA event in Northern Virginia, probably in 2004. I had been attracted to a show of Civil War memorabilia near Dulles Airport and discovered that there was an NRA gun show at an adjacent venue.

As I wandered over to check out the NRA event, I was astonished by how many people were openly-brandishing guns even before they entered the hall. While I was taking in all of this, I was lured to an NRA enrollment table with the offer of a discounted ticket to the gun show. By re-joining the NRA after so many years, I would not only get a discount on the ticket but also an NRA ball cap.

Most of what I saw inside the gun show was a lot of trading and selling of guns and ammunition, but what grabbed my attention and appalled me were the number of vendors selling Nazi memorabilia or knock-offs. The best possible interpretation of these vendors was that they were selling the Nazi items to World War II re-enactors, but the more I observed, the more I became convinced that my initial understanding was naive. In some cases at least, these items were being purchased as objects of veneration.

That was the day the NRA lost me forever. Today, the organization has become nothing more than a front for firearms manufacturers and its leadership is corrupted by vanity and self-dealing.

..Spread is way too much as other countries say THANK YOU to clueless Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve. Germany, and many others, are playing the game! CRAZY INVERTED YIELD CURVE! We should easily be reaping big Rewards & Gains, but the Fed is holding us back. We will Win!
